Serge Koussevitzky: Master of the Double Bass
A recording of two works composed or arranged, and performed by Serge Koussevitzky on double bass and Pierre Luboshutz, on piano. The first piece is an arrangement for piano and double bass, of the Largo movement of Henry Eccles “Sonata No. 11 in G Minor.” This is followed by Koussevitzky’s own composition “Chanson Triste.” The occasional scratchy quality of this historical early 20th century recording takes nothing away from the deep, mournful, and resonant sound of these two pieces, featuring the famed Russian musician at his best.
